Why are the X850XT Crossfire Ed. So Expensive? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
On Newegg they were under $100. They sold out rather quickly since for $100 dollars there was no other card even close to as good. Also Bladey ATI does not make more money from sites selling there x850xt for more money. They sell them to all the retailers for the same price.

As said looks like Overcharging then.
post #14 of 18
Its old tech and some places just don't update there prices hardly at all and since they don't make them anymore people can charge whatever they want. Ive seen places charge several hundred for 1ghz PIII cpus, and not Xeons. I watched Newegg sell theirs out quickly after price cuts, the X850XT CF being more novelty, Newegg could afford to sell them at a lost; it probably made more sense for them to clean out old stock.

They were, at one time, $150 for the cross-fire cards but they are slowing dying out and getting rare.

X850 XT Crossfire editions were selling for $149, now most of the stock has just run out so any left overs are being over priced.

Just a matter of missing the boat on the good prices. Now you might as well just get an X1950 Pro which is probably just as fast as 2x X850 XTs and you can run 1600x1200 resolutions at 60hz and higher resolutions too, unlike X850 XTs in crossfire.

http://shop.ati.com clearance page still has X800 Crossfire Editions, for an ultra cheap $79 too. You could actually crossfire that with an X850 XT it would just downclock to 500/500. Or you could overclock the X800 to X850 XT speeds but it has the single slot cooler on it, might need a better one.
